Composer’s Log: Oct. 9, 2017

It’s been another busy week. I’ve sent off the finished excerpts for Hartford Opera Theater‘s New in November performance on Nov. 18.  They’ll be including a section of about 15 minutes for Marie and Irene from the middle portion that I’ve been working on this last month.  Since this section features one of Marie’s major arias, “I Take My Life in Measurements,” I thought I would share the current version in today’s log.  The video below includes the score plus a MIDI mock-up.

I’ve got to run off to a concert—Charity Clark is performing excerpts from Iseult Speaks this afternoon—so I’ll just leave you with that excerpt.  I’ll be turning back to Marie’s rage aria this week and am looking forward to sharing some teasers for that.  Until next week!
